The Festival offers a unique opportunity for cross-cultural education by promoting understanding of the many cultures represented in our town and beyond. The Festival is a means for recognizing that such diversity enriches our community. We believe that our annual international film festival highlights core values and aspirations we share in common with our culturally diverse neighbors and with all members of the global human family.
Films will be screened as DVD in NTSC and/ or MP3, Mp4 format. If works are not in English, they must have English subtitles since all selected works will be shown in their original language.
